How to Create a Funky Retro Album Cover in Photoshop

In this tutorial I will be showing you how to design a retro album cover straight out of the 70's! To create our album cover we will be using The Beardy typeface by Aiyari from The Amazing Designer's Creative Collection. Along with these great fonts you will also find various brushes, textures, lettering kits and watercolour collections from some of the top creators in the industry today. If you're all ready for a blast from the past then fire up Photoshop and let's get started!
